English term or phrase: icebreaker
Hi. I am interested in Abkhazian and I would like to know, how do you say, "icebreaker" in Abkhazian?

An icebreaker is anything serving to lessen formality or break down reserve. They often use them when to loosen people up in a formal or social setting.

Please let me know. Thank you.

The term ice-breaker is a colloquial term referencing the ships that work the trade routes within the artic circle. Since the language you're searching for a translation in has no residents indigenous to the artic circle I pieced this together. The term АЦә АРҞәРАЛАКﮪ uses АЦә meaning ice. АРҞәРА meaning to break or cut. The suffix -ЛАКﮪ is the gerund form for the future tense.
